After many years of studying the origins & roots of words common to the Sumerian & later Middle Eastern languages, John Allegro believes that many of the stories & characters, & much of the Old Testament must be examined afresh. Biblical stories, previously supposed at leat partly historical, now appear as mushroom myths, conforming to a pattern of such mythology throughout the Near East & classical writings. When, later, the mushroom cult became sophisticated into a mystery religion, involving drug taking & frenzied god possessed orgies with political overtones, it ran afoul of the authorities. To avoid persecution, its devotees transmitted their secret formulae in adaptations of the old mythologies, & it is to such cryptic devices we owe the Jesus stories of the New Testament. The Roman persecutors of the early Christians were probably not deceived by the tale of the crucifies Jewish rabbi, but the later church purged away disturbing reminders of its cultic origins in the cause of respectability, & thereafter preached an historical Jesus.", -----contents include: Introduction; In the Beginning God Created; Sumer and the Beginnings of History; the Names of the Gods; Plants and Drugs; Plant Names and the Mysteries of the Fungus; the Key of the Kingdom; the Man-Child Born of a Virgin; Woman's Part in the Creative Process; The Sacred Prostitute; Religious Lamentation; The Mushroom 'EGG' and Birds of Mythology; the Heavenly Twins; Star of the Morning; Colour and Consistency; Mushroom Cosmography; David, Egypt, and the Census; Death and Resurrection; the Garden of Adonis, Eden and Delight ...

Empire, War & Cricket in South Africa explores in detail how Matjiesfontein was created and how Logan developed this little Karoo town into a renowned health resort, attracting the rich and famous – including the likes of South African novelist Olive Schreiner and England cricketer George Lohmann. But above all, this is the untold story of how James Logan was instrumental in developing the game of cricket in South Africa at a time when the country was heading towards war with the British Empire. Logan immigrated to South Africa in 1877 at the age of 19 and almost immediately began amassing a fortune through business, politics and his high-profile association with that most favoured of imperial pastimes. In Empire, War & Cricket in South Africa, readers will learn how one of the first international cricket matches between South Africa and England took place at Matjiesfontein; explore the controversial 1901 South African cricket tour to England in the midst of the Anglo-Boer War; read the amazing story of how Logan once had the captain and manager of England’s cricket team arrested as they boarded their ship home; and discover Logan’s close relationship with Rhodes and how their ‘shady dealings’ brought down the Premier’s first government. llustrated throughout with photographs and documents, Empire, War & Cricket in South Africa is a unique social and political history of the workings of the British Empire in South Africa during the late 19th century; a well-researched and fascinating biography of the man who gave us Matjiesfontein; and an entertaining and at times unbelievable story of cricket’s origins in South Africa.
